"It's a Major Award"

I was thrilled to find out that I had won the giveaway on Maya's blog, Completely Coastal.
What did I win, you ask?
So glad you did ask, because I am dying to show you!
I won this glicee canvas print of a seahorse.

The canvas is literally as big as the leather chair in my den. I didnt expect it to be that big.
I'm so excited to own this piece. I am going to put it in my bedroom or in my bathroom suite, both of which have a coastal theme. The artist is Gerri Hyman of Outer Banks Trading Company. If you would like to order a print from Gerri, or to see more of her art pieces, click here.

Almost 2 years ago, artist Gerri Hyman started this endeavor by creating a few designs of lively and whimsical sea creatures to reproduce and turn into decorative products. Gerri was inspired not only by summers spent on the South and North Carolina coasts, but also by numerous trips to warm, tropical locations. Her creations are not meant to be too realistic in color and shape; but are representative of the sea life, fowl, and foliage on her imaginary island... better known as My Island.

Gerri is a graduate of the University of SC and lives in upstate SC with her husband, Gary, 3 sons, and 3 cats. Several times a year, My Island expands to include new designs and products so visit them at
